What Makes It Great

I have back pains where I would have to wake up in the middle of the night to stretch. We bought this bed 4 months ago as it was one of the most expensive beds in the showroom and thinking it would help. After the first few nights, I felt that the buttons on the bed were so deep it's like sleeping on mole hills. We bought a firm mattress as the medium in the showroom was too soft. The firm one we received felt a lot firmer than the one we tried in the showroom. It is uncomfortable, hard and bumpy and my back has not improved. I still get restless night every night so I went back to the showroom to speak about the guarantee and options before the guarantee term ended. There was only 1 other bed in the showroom around the same price with worse reviews. I was advised that the bed can take some time to soften up and purchasing a mattress topper would help with the bumps. So I left it as it is as I did not want to end up with a worse bed and bought a mattress topper online. It reduced the bumps for a couple of months as the mattress topper is made of cotton (like sleeping on a duvet). Now the weather is warmer and thinking the bumps may have soften, I removed the topper and the bumps are still there! The worst part is that we just came back from a 3 night weekend break and I did not get any back pains for the 3 nights while we were away. So the problem is with the bed and now we are stuck with it every night !

Your mattress should be rotated on a regular basis as this is the easiest way to prolong and increase the longevity of your mattress. The main benefits to regularly rotating your mattress is the continued support and comfort while reducing any risk of sagging that may otherwise occur

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

Ensure that every single part of your body is moulded to your mattress by going for one with 3000 springs, all perfectly aligned and adjusting to every movement you make

This spring system is exclusive to Dreams. However, the pocket spring is generally a very good spring system for a mattress and will give you all the comfort and support necessary

A decent height for padding material representing a barrier between you and the springs that make up the core of the mattress. This type of mattress should be comfortable as a result of the depth of this soft and comfortable material

Medium Firm is the optimal firmness for a mattress if you are looking for comfort but also suffer from some minor back problems. This is because this type of mattress will ease the amount of strain on your muscles but not in such a way to deter comfort, ensuring a great nights sleep

Questions and Answers

Whats the weight of the Mattress?

Answer: Hello, This product will be 18-25kg depending on it's size. Many thanks for the question.

Hi are the mattress, or the cover, treated with chemical fire retardants?

Answer: Hi , Yes, all mattresses are required to by law. Thank you.

what does the zipped option mean in the sizing?

Answer: Hi , The zipped options are zip and link options. This is beneficial for couples with different comfort preferences, as you will be able to have two mattresses and join them together to create one king or super king. It can also help to get your mattress up the stairs if your stairs are narrow, as you can unzip the king/super king into a smaller mattress. Thank you.

Can you choose which side is medium and which side is firm, on the zip and link option?

Answer: Hi , This mattress is rotatable, so you can choose which side has which firmness when you are placing it on your bed frame or divan. Thank you for your question.

what covers the springs in the mattress?

Answer: Hi , Each spring is individually packed in a polyester case. Kind Regards, Giedre

Is it true that you don’t flip the mattress. How do you know which is the top?

Answer: This mattress is not double sided and therefore cannot be turned over. The top of the mattress can be determined by ensuring that the label on the mattress is the correct way up. Kind Regards, Dreams

Can an electric blanket be used with this mattress?

Answer: An electric blanket can be used with this mattress however we do not recommend that they are placed directly on the surface of the mattress. In addition, using an electric blanket may alter the comfort grade of the mattress. We recommend following all guidelines and instructions specified by the manufacturer of your electric blanket. Kind Regards, Dreams

Whats the spring count for the double, i wanted more than 2500?

Answer: There will be 2400 springs in a double. Kind Regards, Dreams

Fantastic mattress and service!

I bought this mattress almost a month ago after months of interrupted and low quality sleep. I previously had a memory foam mattress from IKEA, one of the ones that comes folded up and, it was terrible from the get go. I was always too hot, it misshaped very quickly... it was time to get a new one! I picked this mattress because it is all natural fibres, no memory foam, pocket spring and the right firmness for me. Well, I am not disappointed. I have had the best sleep ever since it arrived. The gentlemen who dropped it off rang throughout the day to let me know when they would be arriving and they took it directly to my room when they arrived. I live in a flat and they were happy to bring it up stairs. They also had shoe covers to protect my carpets! All round, excellent product and service.

Wonderful new mattress

I had been waking up with back pain every day, which appeared to be getting progressively worse, and uncomfortably warm because our matress also had memory foam. We purchased a new mattress a month ago. Day 1 I woke up with a little twinge in my back but the pain was not like I have had and normal body temperature. Day 2 - the same, Day 3 - woke up feeling refreshed and well rested. We shouldn't have waited so long to get a new mattress because I have been waking up every day feeling refreshed, well rested and with a normal body temperature since! Love, love, love our new mattress!


We have been sleeping on our new mattress for about two weeks now. Moved away from memory foam as it was always too hot and once sunk into it found it hard to move making our sleep always disturbed as the simple act of turning over meant waking up. This new mattress though is superb, cool, firm and supportive. We have been sleeping very well indeed. It may be expensive but two things you must have; a good bed and a good pair of shoes. Because if you’re not in one, you’re in the other.

Simply Perfect Mattress

We are so happy we purchased this mattress, changing from a memory foam back to a traditional mattress, it’s nice and deep but not too deep that the sheets don’t fit, comfortable, cooling and possibly the best night sleep we have had in years, the delivery team were helpful and friendly there isn’t anything to complain about. This is our 2nd purchase from Dreams both via online ordering and we will defuse using dreams again

Most comfortable mattress I’ve owned

I purchased this item a month ago along with a bed from dreams. I had to wait a few weeks for a delivery date but I’m gathering it’s because I chose the installation option as well as removal. The mattress is extremely comfortable. Its so comfortable you just want to stay in bed and watch tv or sleep ! My partner suffers with a spine issue and this mattress has subdued some of the pain she has after a nights sleep.

A perfect night’s sleep

We needed a new mattress for our bed that suited both my husband and myself. He is a big chap and wanted a firm one but I have arthritis in my spine and need a medium one Dreams were able to accommodate us both with their zip link mattress. It was a perfect choice and we can both now enjoy a good night’s sleep. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dreams to anyone looking for a perfect matrix’s.

Pure amazing mattress

Bought this after a visit to one of the Dreams shops and had the "sleep analyzer" (can't remember what they called it). It recommended me a firm mattress and after trying this on, fell in love instantly. It doesn't have the memory foam or anything like that, but it really doesn't need it. It is comfortable beyond belief, and there's a chance we'll buy the same mattress for our other bed.

Hands down the nicest thing I ever slept on!

This mattress was a splurge, and I joke it was made knitted by wolves in a shed in Wales or some such exotic-ness given the price. But regardless it was a great investment. honestly so comfortable, firm but soft etc. It’s so good we’ve had it almost 5 months and I’ve come on here just to review it! So if in doubt go ahead great quality and luxury. No wear and tear at all 5 months in.

Great service

I have purchased a ottoman bed and a separate mattress over the last few months, and I have found the, service excellent and the staff, helpful, friendly, polite and knowledgeable, and the prices reasonable . My deliveries were on time and the delivery men were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend Dreams to my friends and family.

Very Firm

We have this mattress in firm. The mattress itself is very good quality but firm definitely means firm in this case. Since having this mattress a month ago I haven't had a good night's sleep. I sleep on my front and I'm now suffering terribly with lower back pain and lack of sleep. I dread going to bed nowadays.

Love it!

Had this mattress 3 weeks and I've had the best sleep in ages. My last mattress had a memory foam topper but after 6 years I felt I was sleeping in a hammock. I thought this would be too firm but it's been bliss from the first night! Highly recommend!

At last...a good night's sleep

Very grateful for guidance on which mattress to choose. Medium firmness, so no sinking into the mattress, just a nice amount of support. And, as it's made from natural materials, one doesn't get hot and uncomfortable. Well worth the money.

Perfect mattress

Brought this mattress a couple of weeks ago and I’m wishing we brought it sooner. It’s ridiculously comfortable and both me and my partner love it. The only problem we have is never wanting to get up in the morning as it’s so comfy.

Large comfortable bed

We have had our bed 2 weeks now & we love it.Sleeping in comfort & waking up feeling refreshed with none of the back aches i had previously.The extra size suits us with enough room to slerp in comfort.

Perfect for back pain

Bought this mattress a month ago and was quite hesitant as I had memory foam previously, but this mattress has turned out to be a lot better for my back and I’m not in nearly as much pain anymore.

Very comfortable

Very pleased with the mattress over all but disappointed that it could only be turned round not over which was the style of mattress we told the staff at Dreams we were looking for.

Mattress brilliant and great night sleep

Dreams is such a great store, i have had no issues when shopping with them twice in the last year, the mattress i have purchased is everything it says it is and more

Great service

I brought a memory foam mattress from Dreams, exactly what I was looking for. Very pleased with the quality of the products and the staff and service provided

Great night's sleep!

We've had this mattress for nearly a month now and I've never slept better. It's so comfortable and it's even improved my partner's back problems.

So comfortable

It's so comfortable I now sleep like a log - money well spent and excellent experience at the Sheffield store - served by Bev
